I got in on CigarPage's El Primer Mundo Costa Fuerte deal the last time around and they ended up being good sticks, in my opinion. This time, I grabbed the darker El Primer Mundo La Hermandad Caballitos. The 10er is a ridiculously low $15.90, shipped!
For comparison's sake (same cigar and vitola from different vendors):
Famous-Smoke.com - EPM Costa Fuerte - Consejero (6x60) - $43.99 for 5er ($8.79/stick + shipping)
Cigar.com - EPM Costa Fuerte - Consejero (6x60) - $206.99 for box of 24 ($8.62/stick + shipping)
CigarsInternational.com - EPM Costa Fuerte - Consejero (6x60) - $114.47 for box of 24 ($4.76/stick + shipping)
CigarPage.com - EPM Costa Fuerte - Consejero (6x60) - $18.50 for 10er ($1.85/stick, shipped!)
Here's the cut-and-paste from CigarPage's website:
How about $1.45 to $1.90 for solid, well-made and delicious handmade, one that'd cost you damn near 10 bucks elsewhere? El Primer Mundo may translate to 'First World,' but at 80% off this humdinger is a full-on Third World deal (sans the Dengue and dysentery). So leave that wheelbarrow filled with a trillion Zimbabwe bills at home, 'cause this costs you under 2 George Washingtons.
El Primer Mundo is a hidden gem originally made in Little Havana Miami. It's not so hidden anymore however, and that's why most production had to be moved to the Pinar del Rio factory in Dominican Republic to keep up with demand. These blends offer bushel loads of rich, robust flavor. You ain't gonna be disappointed. At these prices, it's a complete and total no-brainer.
EPM La Hermandad:
tasty cigar right off the bat, delivering a rich, bold complex flavor profile with some cocoa, roasted coffee beans, and pepper notes. The wrapper is a savory Brazilian Arapiraca leaf, complemented by Nicaraguan long-fillers and binder. Full-bodied.
EPM Costa Fuerte:
a bit mellower, Costa Fuerte still brings some character. Complex and rich yet balanced, it brings notes of espresso, spice, and vanilla to the table, along with ample creaminess. The wrapper is a flawless leaf hailing from the Bahia region of Brazil covering an Olor Dominican Binder and long-filler tobaccos from the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua.
